I could already add comments, but now I can't. I am using Firefox 11.0, tried to use IE9 but the problem persists

You can't here on Meta or on Stack Overflow? – Martin. Apr 7 '12 at 8:19
Can you give us a link to a question where you tried to post a comment? – Yannis Apr 7 '12 at 8:20
@YahooAnswersenthusiast Firefox. He said that – Martin. Apr 7 '12 at 8:20
@Martin Yes, he edited it in after my comment (in the grace period, so don't bother checking the revision history, it's not there). – Yannis Apr 7 '12 at 8:21
stackoverflow.com/questions/10052675/… , it seems using Firefox i can leave a comment in meta.stackoverflow.com ? – siamak Apr 7 '12 at 8:23
Are you sure you're logged in? (With 13 rep you cannot comment here on Meta. But with your 95 rep on Stack Overflow, it should work there; see How do comments work.) – Arjan Apr 7 '12 at 8:23

Based on comments: you're not logged in.

Login is necessary to do everything based on reputation. Cookies aren't enough

In case you were able to send a question, you WERE logged in – Martin. Apr 7 '12 at 8:34

You have to hover over your name at the topbar and hit "Log out" and "log out" once again on the page you're redirected to – Martin. Apr 7 '12 at 8:43

Clear cache, cookies. It should unlog you and (maybe) log you back. Try it – Martin. Apr 7 '12 at 8:54
thank u so much Martin – siamak Apr 7 '12 at 9:18
